There is nothing wrong with the M4 other than the 5.56mm round. Replace the the 5.56mm with the 6.5mm X 39mm grendel.

What about the:
6.8 X 43 SPC,
6.5 x 45 APC, or
6.8 X 45.
The Grendel requires new bolt and a new magazine to function, has a significantly reduced magazine capacity, and an unacceptable increase in weight (210 rounds in magazines). The 6.8 SPC suffers from the same defects.
The 6.5 x 45 and the 6.8 x 45 use the same bolt face and magazine (with minor modifications) as the 5.56 X 45 with minimum increase in weight.

(A kind word and a 2x4, gets you more than just a kind word.)
Replace the the 5.56mm with the 6.5mm X 39mm grendel.
